Please enjoy this serene
view from my window

I want the viewer to feel the power of the setting of the sun below the rich bright western horizon, and see the atmospheric glow and coloring of the sky, as the sun sets, just before it will become dark and the night will begin.
You wish it would be a never ending beauty...


Inspired by the beautiful music of
Loreena McKennitt

La Serinissima


I used modeling paste (Liquitex) with a knife to build up a heavy texture and to create the three dimensional illusion of this painting.
When dried I painted my view with oil paint; now it gives me the impasto look desired.


Oil on a canvas panel

Dimensions 11'x14' (27.9x35.5cm)
Framed in a Bordeaux red wooden frame which complements the colors of the painting.
